9:17 am
>> welcome back. time for the sunday business report. tim joins us. good morning. let's talk about saving for your child's college tuition. very important. it might be one of the most important things for parents to think about in terms of regarding education, what do they need to keep in mind? >> parents need to keep in mind that they do not have an obligation to provide a harvard education to each child. there is this mentality where parents have been bullied into thinking that this is an entitlement. but if it will not the parents in a good financial situation, i would recommend otherwise. >> what is the first step?
9:18 am
>> set up a family education plan. before you make any promises to your children, put together plan for your children saying -- hear is what we are going to do and here's what we are not going to do. for example, my wife and i have had university experience for our children. if they want to go to private school or university of florida, twice as much as university of maryland, that is fine, but they will only get coverage up to the in state. elsewhere is up to them. >> that is okay to do that. but others kept me to be taken? >> game perspective. these days and in-state university is $12,000 for room and board. but that in perspective for what it would be for a private school or and other state school. elite, private school? you are up to $50,000.
9:19 am
if you are saving for the $15,000 commission, you probably need to save about $350 per month every month from the time the child is board to get them to the university of maryland. $700 for a month if you want to get them into penn state. putting it in that perspective is scary. >> comes so quickly. you and i have children, it will be here before we know it. where should you save? >> i believe that the 529 maryland education savings plan is the best place to save. i do not think he should save all of the money, many people cannot when they're young parents, but i would say 50% of your goal needs to go into that savings account. it will help. if you take it out for qualifying, it will benefit tax- free as well.
9:20 am
just in case the kids to not go to college, i do not suggest putting 100% in. >> you are a proponent of saving for your retirement first? >> i would go so far as to say that the most selfish thing that a parent can do is put their child's education before their own retirement. if the kids had to get a savings and loan, that is one thing. if they have to bailout parents in retirement, that is a much bigger expense. >> you will get more financial and buys from tim by checking out his website. stay with us, coming up next on

9:24 am
rid of them that way. >> this is a variation on that with a rake, maybe some bigger debris. >> exec the. there are some pop up tents that you can put over -- exactly. there are some pop up tents that you can put over the pond. you can use der netting, spread it right over there. put it on a bit of an angle and you can scrape it down. >> this feature right here. >> exactly. >> discouraging the children that want to go after the gold fish. >> [laughter] there you go. the other thing that you want to do right now is slow down on feeding your fish as the temperatures cooled down. >> this is like a floating from a letter? >> yes. when the temperature is above 65
9:25 am
and you get down to the cooler temperatures of the spring and the fall, you want to slow to the premium. >> cutting down on the pollution produced by the fish, correct? >> as a slowdown, this will slow down as well. >> easing up on the filter maintenance, changing the chemistry of what is going on in the water? >> exactly. >> and they will just go into a winter funk, i guess? >> exactly. and we will talk about winterizing in a couple of months, but for now just go after them with wiring on the top. flex that is enough on ponds, we have a beautiful yard here. gorgeous flowers. >> that is amazing, it grew from a ball of around the size of a

9:28 am
that's in andy harris' unfair tax plan. 23% sales tax. a 23% sales tax will cut my business in half. would be devastating. andy harris' 23% sales tax absolutely makes no sense.
9:29 am
23% sales tax would really make things unaffordable. that's too high for the average american out here. i don't know how we would manage it really. don't like that idea. we can't afford andy harris' idea. i'm frank kratovil and i approve this message. >> welcome back to 11 news

9:34 am
q&a. joining us this morning is senator ben cardin. good morning. this week we saw you on capitol hill, calling for uniform standards in terms of reporting and investigating sexual assaults. >> it is clear that the sexual assaults are not being reported. investigating police officers are not referring to any of the cases. we want uniform information, so the first thing we are asking for is good statistics. >> what can you get the federal government to do in terms of legislation? >> we can provide additional tools and make it clear what losses. in some cases, sexual assaults are classified as a different type of crime. >> something else you have been working on, the passage of the small business jobs and credit act in the senate. what will it do? >> it feels good to come along
9:35 am
and it will create jobs. right now small businesses are having a difficult time getting credit and this will allow them to get loans from their banks, opening up the possibility for more jobs in the community. >> there has been all kinds of talk about community access, where are the two sides now? should they stay, go, compromise? >> there is agreement on the tax extenders for those making $250,000 or less. democrats and republicans have agreed that we need to extend those tax provisions. the disagreement is whether we should do for those over or under, should be permanent or temporary? >> what about the argument that this would really hurt small businesses? is it some of the stimulus money not involve buying and providing stimulus?
9:36 am
>> small business owners are mainly affected by the rates that are under $250,000 and we want to make sure that they get extended by the end of the year. we are focusing on small business owners, that is where innovation takes place and we want to make sure that small business owners have every opportunity to expand the economy to get back on the right economic path. >> how will this affect-what's so far nothing has been done, but the family that gets the highest tax break by extending them for under $250,000 are those that make $250,000 or more, because they get the maximum amount of the rate reduction. everyone will get help if we extend tax breaks. >> what happens this week? >> we will try to get together, which is difficult this close to an election, but the bottom line is that this is not the time for

middle income families to pay more taxes. >> with it being so close to elections, the tea party made some inroads. were you shocked with what happened with mike castle? >> i was disappointed, he was able to reach across party lines and has been a long time elected official in delaware. the person that beat him in the primary is a person that is pretty extreme. from a partisan democratic position, we are pleased about it because it gives us a better chance for that senate seat, but he is such a wonderful person, i was disappointed by the results. >> so, republicans and democrats are nervous about the tea party. how do you view it? >> it is a division within the republican party. in maryland we know that the tradition of the republican party, it is interesting looking at who might control the republican party. certainly the tea party foundations around the nation
9:38 am
have garnered a lot of support. we think that it will make some of those elections more competitive and more democrats will have a chance to win. >> clearly the american people think that the economic fix did not come as quickly as possible. you think of what we saw around the country was throwing the democrats out with the bath water? >> people are angry that they lost their jobs and their homes, their savings. the choice is -- do you want to go back to the policy that brought us these problems? or do you want to move forward to continue to try to solve these problems can develop our schools and infrastructure? as democrats we have good messages and we will make that point about contrasting for policies. >> turn out that not hurt the maryland delegation in state, but it was not good statewide. what is that a sign of? >> there are a couple of
9:39 am
explanations. the first is that we did not have any marquee primaries amongst voters. four years ago i was involved in a major senate primary that brought out the vote. there was a major fight for controller with congressional seats. we did not have that this year. i think that some of the explanation is that we did not have competitive primaries. others, frankly, are that the voters must be energized. >> this week elizabeth morgan was named the head of the consumer financial protection agency. what can she do? how will this will be different from the ftc in terms of looking at the financial picture? " she will be the point person for the president of the united states, making sure that this consumer bureau will really protect the consumer. a person in the white house that will make sure that these agencies work together to
